  • Dear Mark, dear all,
    Thank you very much for this initiative! I have a similar situation to @Sarah and would love to attend the next webinar.
    Kind regards,

  • Dear all,
    I am an engineer. I have mainly worked on environmental LCA of products or services. In my current research, I am trying to develop a sustainability assessment of products. A way to link social, economic and environmental LCA. By joining this group, I will be happy to discuss how to approach social impact by using LCA tool or not.
    Kind regards,
